Me again, with another Mulberry wood creation!
This time I’ve looked at how to create a lovely night sky for the owls, using my faithful Spectrum Noir Pens of course! The very talented Lis Murphy has a done a similar effect over on the Spectrum Noir Blog, check it out.
I’m going to try a new technique of step by steps for you and put the text under the photo so you don’t gave to scroll for 3 miles to see the tutorial! – let’s see if it works 🙂
Each image should have information under for each step. If you want to see it bigger click on the image – Ouh it’s exciting!
OK, so once the topper is coloured, I’ve die-cut and layered it up. I wanted to keep the night feel going so I’ve used some old grey coloured papers I had lying around, and matted them onto the Old Rose from our Core’dination’s Dark’s pack.
The Circle layers, have been cut on my eCraft, even the sentiment and its matt, I love it, because I can cut perfect matts and layers in unusual shapes, with perfect ease.
A tiny bit of my special grey velvet ribbon and lace trim adds a touch of class to the corner of the topper.
As you no doubt know by now. I like to decorate inside my card’s. I really do think it changes your project from an ordinary card, to a really special one, and if you are selling them, you will be able to sell them for more!
So, using Old Rose again and matching grey papers, this time with a star pattern to match the shooting star theme. I’ve matted and layered the inside of the card. the circle, for writing your greeting, as again been cut using the eCraft. A bit of ribbon add’s finishing touch.
I think this is a perfect masculine Christmas Card. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
See you soon
